If a doctor suddenly had a heart attack while doing surgery...

    would the other doctors work on the doctor or the patient?

      BOTH
      I've been around when this has happened (was mini-stroke, not heart attack).

      Assistant surgeons and other surgeons who were called to take over, took care of the patient- quite a seamless transition, actually. Others took the surgeon to the ER for treatment.

      Both the surgeon and the patient were ok, luckily.
